Need your help for Windchill license compliance. I have developed custom report which list's out the last logins of the users from DB's Audit records. This is a query builder report. The aim is to disable all users who have not logged in to Windchill since last 6 months.
However i have noticed that if i dump a report of Groups (in DS) and the users in this groups (from AD) into an excel; there are many users listed there which have been disabled in AD. Note that they are not disabled in Windchill but disabled in AD
QUESTION 1) . A login event is not generated by such users but notifications are being sent to them ; they being part of some group. Do such members consume Windchill License ?
QUESTION 2) How do you classify the audited user list as in 4 distinct roles, (Heavy user, Light user, View & Print user and External user) ? Windchill is licensed as per these roles.
QUESTION 3) How to best generate the compliance report and optimize license compliance ? What process do you follow to maintain accurate Windchill role count ?
